Supply Chain Compliance

J&M combines Supply Chain Management with Compliance

Requirements concerning an efficient supply chain are increasingly being expanded by demands of the authorities. The realisation of global conditions for combat of terrorism, for implementation of electronic and harmonised customs handling as well as for protection of environment and living, constitutes a more and more important task for the ones in charge of the Supply Chain. In order to avoid impending cost increases, delays, loss of reputation and penalties, optimisation potentials range from possible strategic realignments to adjustments in organisation and processes and to IT implementations.

Holistic consideration of compliance topics

J&M combines classic Supply Chain Management with compliance requirements. Thus it is possible to ensure a smooth, predictable and economic movement of goods between all parties involved. The integration of functionalities of customs and foreign trade processing, EH&S-Systems as well as logistic handling of hazardous material is being associated and considered holistically with the company strategy, processes, organisation and IT.

Securing the supply chain in the long term

Isolated examinations of single departments such as purchasing, production, sales or finance often induce monolithic solution approaches with only short-term success. To ensure sustainable improvements, subjects like customs handlings, import and export controls, sanction party list screening, preference goods handling, REACH, and management of hazardous material should be evaluated and designed comprehensively. On the one hand a management across system and organisation of all required compliance master data is important for a long-term securing of the supply chain. On the other hand a balanced and supply-chain-oriented risk and security management is playing an important role: It minimises risks of transnational movement of goods and of the logistic handling of hazardous material.

Reducing costs and risks with Supply Chain Compliance

An integration of governmental requirements in the organisational, process and IT landscape enables an automated logistics processing conforming to the law. In addition to increasing efficiency of movement of goods and cost reductions this involves minimised risks. Furthermore, companies profit from a secured company reputation since criminal offences concerning violation of applicable customs and foreign trade regulations can be prevented easily. There is fast access to procurement and sales market as well as transparent SC Compliance master data like standardised tariffing, declaration of origin, hazard goods class, etc.
